77 Winsover Road is what Google identified when I clicked on that location, the location of the cottage and footbridge was actually on the other side of the road, ignore the '77' house number.

This photo is of Thomas Woolsey and Elizabeth Cardell at the marriage of Ally Bright to 'Edith' Woolsey as related to me by Lionel Mertz, yet she is called 'Grace' in other sources, so if anyone knows which is the correct name or if both are the same person it would be appreciated,

The photo was taken at the family farm at Gosberton Clough.

I've since discovered that Caroline Maud died of TB rather than leukaemia, and possibly Olive and Ivy, one of them the same week, but not sure whom until I dig into my notes.

From Top Left:
Betsey, Liz, Thomas, Stanley (My Grandfather), Thirza
From front Left:
Elizebeth (Cardell) Woolsey, Doll, Enid Rebecca, John William 'Ally' Bright, Caroline 'Maud' Bright, (My Grandmother), Edith.

If anyone can confirm the names are correct for those in the photo's, that too would be much appreciated, I spoke to Les over the phone before he died last year and the names are as he remembered them, but in different positions on the photo to when it was passed on to me, he'd seen the photo, but we didn't have them to hand when we spoke.

Many thanks, those references are very helpful and may get me digging into the family history again,

English Lever, I got that photo sent to me a few years ago, a digital copy. I was given the following identities from comments on my photo:
"
From left to right back row: Betsey Woolsey,  Liz (possibly Elizabeth Woolsey ) Thomas Woolsey, Stanley Woolsey and his wife Caroline Maud Bright.
Front row: Elizabeth Woolsey Doll (possibly Dorothy Woolsey,) Edith Rebecca Woolsey, Ally? Grace Lillian Bright, and Thirza.
"

Thanks, yes that's the information I got, but having spoken to Les Woolsey before he died, he confirmed that the lady sat next to the bride was in fact his Mother, Caroline 'Maud' Woolsey (Nee Bright), she was the matron of Honour.

Thank you :) I don't have Les on my tree, I have Reginald as the son of Caroline. I presume Les is his brother?

Oh I see. I've only managed to get your father's name. Are you on Ancestry?

I have tried to put the names onto the photo so I can remember better, Can you correct me please, I think it is probably wrong!
